How can this city of ours survive with the idea of just building more roads.
Blueprint for city omits key transport proposals
A change to the government’s Plan Melbourne document has been blamed on a swelling population but a key underground rail line that would link Clifton Hill and Newport, and include stations at Fishermans Bend, has been excluded.
"How can this city of ours survive with the idea of just building more roads."
I went to the website for the "Plan Melbourne" project to find out how the Herald Sun came to this conclusion. The "Plan Melbourne" blueprint, available here"How can this city of ours survive with the idea of just building more roads."
From Outcome 3 (Transport):
- Create a metro-style rail system with ‘turn up and go’ frequency and reliability
- Improve outer-suburban public transport
- Increase the volume of freight carried on rail
- Improve local transport choices
- Locate schools and other regional facilities near existing public transport and provide safe walking and cycling routes and drop-off zones
Immediately noted on the website as well is that there is a seperate, 5 year plan with 112 actions, here
Ctrl+F and enter 'Fishermen' and it comes up with a number of plans for Fishermens Bend.
This is just typical Herald Sun hyperbole, preying on the lazy/uninformed.
